I Love My Boys


I have some of the world's best kids. They are both so sweet and funny. I feel truly blessed to have two happy, healthy boys.
I love to snuggle with Brennan, talk about what is going on in his world, and just enjoy his innocence. Jackson is so sweet to watch as he tries so hard to keep up with his big brother. They both try so hard to please me and Bart, bringing us little things they find, giving us an award winning smile, or offering a hug at just the right moment.
And my goodness, the things they do and say! Yesterday, at Payless Shoes, Brennan looks into the small mirror on the bottom of the bench and says, "Does this make my butt look big?" What?!? Where did that come from?
And Jackson, he loves to do everything Brennan is doing. When Brennan went skinny dipping last night, Jackson was pulling on his clothes, whining to get in, too. He was not satisfied to just get in with Brennan, he had to get naked, too. (Brennan was naked only because he didn't want to get his underwear wet!)
It seems I have spent more time with them these last few weeks as we have been visiting family and friends. I have really developed a greater love for them and all their quirks and even the flaws (yes, my children aren't perfect, but neither are yours!) I can hardly believe that in a few short weeks Brennan will start preschool. I am going to miss him, even if it is just three hours a day, five days a week. I am so thankful for these two boys, and all their quirky ways.

4 Words to brighten my day:

They certainly are cute- like a billion times cute (Brennan cracked me up when he was eating mac and cheese and asked you whether he had to eat 'like 45 of them'!)I can't for Peyton to be more than an eating, sleeping, crying lump. Good times ahead!

they are good times, but sometimes i miss the eat, sleep, poop routine.

Lexi, Troy and Peyton: said...

Where have you been? Are you running around naked again (that's what Bart says you do at home). You must be up to something good because we haven't seen a peep out of you for days now. Should I send out the search party or should I join in the fun?
